Samsung "Hercules" seems to be T-Mobile's version of an Infuse 4G on steroids
AT&T customers are currently able to enjoy all the wonders that the Samsung Infuse 4G has to offer, but it appears that T-Mobile customers will be seeing light of a similar device – but it’s something going to be far bigger. Although it’s not entering Tmo’s testing labs for at least another month, the device going by the code name Samsung “Hercules” is looking to gain acceptance with the carrier some time around mid-August.
Basically, it’s best described as a Samsung Infuse 4G like handset, but it’s literally on steroids. It’ll be featuring things like a 4.5” WVGA (480 x 800) Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 8-megapixel camera with flash, 1080p video recording, front-facing camera, Category 24 HSDPA (42Mbps) & Category 6 HSUPA (5.76Mbps), support for Tmo’s AWS band with 850/1900MHz compatibility to work with AT&T’s “4G” network, 16GB ROM, 1GB RAM, and an unbelievable 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor. Though, just like the Infuse 4G, it’ll be lacking an HDMI port of some sort, but rather, it’ll stream stuff courtesy of its microUSB port via MHL.
Based on the recent leak, it’s looking as if the Hercules will be listed at the “over $350” category – albeit, it’s not known whether that is going to be its off or on-contract pricing. Still, we’d suspect it’s going to be the latter of the two. Sure it’s going to be some time before we see this one arriving on the scene, but it’s enough to get many people to start drooling over it.
